look at all the sick press it got:

• the village voice made it a voice choice
• metro new york has the brilliant "smug pug parade" headline and a brief interview with a hideous man.
• brooklyn paper has me saying in all sincerity, “i don’t want to compromise the integrity of the pageant”
• harpers has a fascinating article about xenophobia and violence in america
if you can’t make it out to powerhouse, i’ll be spinning records at sound fix in brooklyn on saturday. bring a dog, get a $1 off a book! more info here

WHAT IS THIS? the hipster puppies cassette is a present for the pups and peeps whose photos ended up in the hipster puppies book. it also works as a love letter to my city, as it features a meticulously curated selection of 20 of my favorite new york bands. after the contributors and artists get copies, i should have about 175 copies left over.
HOW MUCH ARE THEY? the tapes are not for sale, and are strictly value-adds when you buy a copy of the hipster puppies book at select outlets
WELL, WHERE CAN I GET ONE? i will have ample copies at the hipster puppies pageant at powerhouse books on august 25 and the sound fix records in-store on august 27. please bring your dog to both events!
if you can’t make it out to those, you can currently score copies with your hipster puppies purchase at at sound fix in brooklyn and cake shop in manhattan.
WHY CASSETTES? because i’m exasperating brooklyn hipster slime and everything has to be extra difficult for us or it’s not worth anything, duh.
for a “social anthropology experiment,” marcus will be attending the gathering of the puggalos

• Hipster Puppies: The Book is out now in a store near you. Why don’t you buy one for someone you love or tolerate
• We made the New York Magazine Approval Matrix, which calls us “brilliant” and “lowbrow.” My publishers are enthusiastic about how low we rank on the lowbrow scale considering the number of blowjob jokes that made the cut. Hi, mom!
• Vol. 1 has an in-depth Q&A with the creator of Hipster Puppies, which is a true honor considering they usually cover books with more than 150 sentences in them.
• I did not come up with the Google+ pupster, but he’s awesome.
• Info on the Brooklyn release party and the limited edition Hipster Puppies cassette is forthcoming. Needless to say, if you like in New York, prepare to be very psyched.

Today is the official release day of Hipster Puppies, the book. The timeless meme has successfully turned itself into a novel for the ages, already the inaugural recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Snarky Animal-Based Captions, Toilet-Tank Division. Be sure to order a copy for yourself and everyone you know… we’re turning the New York Review Of Books into our own personal wee-wee pad!
Today, before you treat your bookshelf to some Jennifer Egan or Malcolm Gladwell or whatever, ask yourself, “Does this book have pictures of dogs in sunglasses in it?” If not, the book probably sucks and is probably hard to read.
Here are some places to buy it immediately: Amazon • Indiebound • Barnes & Noble • Books-A-Million • Borders
Also, it’s probably in your local bookstore. If it’s not, you should do the right thing and move immediately.
Seriously, though, Hipster Puppies is 85% new material, and I saved all the cutest dogs and all my best jokes for the occasion. You can even meet a few of our new puppy pals (and their owners) in this week’s New York Post.
Please reblog and link the fuck out of this because my landlord is no longer taking “Oh, I have popular internet meme” in exchange for rent money.
So yeah, if you treat yourself to one glossy picture book for adults in 2011… well, you’re probably going to buy that stupid swearing-at-my-kids thing.
